WILMINGTON — The following information comes from incident reports provided by the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office. All those arrested are presumed innocent until possibly found guilty in court.

The sheriff’s office recently processed these reports:

• Deputies arrested a 48-year-old Wilmington male for two counts of alleged criminal damage and one count of aggravated menacing after responding to a reported domestic incident at a residence on Buck Run Road in Chester Township at 9:35 p.m. on July 27. According to the report, when deputies arrived a 62-year-old female stated the suspect — who is related to her by marriage — was at the residence when he “became enraged” and began hitting the truck belonging to a 58-year-old Blanchester male with a sledgehammer. The suspect also allegedly made threats against the male, threatening “to kill him.” Later the suspect kicked in the back interior door into the residence from the garage and “then stormed off stating ‘I should kill all of you’” the report stated. Both subjects said neither was assaulted but there was extensive damage to the vehicle and building. The suspect reportedly refused to give his side of the story or give a written statement. He was then transported to the Clinton County Jail.
